i have a cell phone not a house phone so how they got my number is beyond me *confused look*
ok so im going to be a freshman at a community college in massachusetts for communications and after applying for fafsa i shortly got a voicemail form these people i don't answer unknowned numbers. i thought it was some company associated with fafsa or whatever to help college students so i signed up on the site they gave me so it'd be easier for me to pay for college and now they call all the time even late at night while im a sleep and it's so annoying. after reading they aren't legit im nervous about the fact i gave out my info. =/
I think I may have figured this out. Has everyone ever given their information to Lincoln Tech, Lincoln College or another technical school but then not actually gone through with their application to apply to said school? Well if so then from an inside source I have found out that if the school can't make money off you my going to the school then they sell your information to companies like requestagrant.com, so that they can make money off you in another way. Scam any way you put it!!!
I have been called 3 times now about these grants and called local police and they said to write the number down that comes up on caller ID, google the number and I am here. They told me don't do anything with the website and DON'T GIVE OUT ANY PERSONAL INFO and the info they have possibly came from a 3rd party of some sort that has this info. THIS IS A SCAM!!!! Read up on real grants from the government....this is NOT listed!
they called me at 11:50 pm, I reported to do not call.gov
They called my number at 11:10PM!!!
This may or may not be a ligitimate place but they called at 11:15 PM!!!
So much for the Do Not Call List!
Pissed Off Mar 01st, 2009
They just called at 10:52PM!!!!!! I am on the DO NOT CALL list, so KNOCK IT OFF!!!!

caller representing cash grant institute offering thousands of dollars in grant money.
I received a call from this number saying they were from Washington DC and I was to check out requestagrant.com for money. They wade it sound like an official announcement from the Federal Government. Cash Grant Institute
Have called multiple times. Various times day & nite. I am on the do not call list. Message is "free grant money is available to people like you. Go to website www.requestagrant.com ....yeah right.
They called me at 11:00 pm. I answered and no one was there. I am on the do not call list...what kind of company is this? I haven't gone to any websites like this or anything.
They started today calling did answer phone will not next time I was expecting a phone call in that area code.
called me at 6:28 pm cash grant institute apparently called twice 2 messages on my voice mail. I don`t know who they are or how they got my number, but I will not be calling them back.
I'VE BEEN GETTING A LOT OF CALLS AND EMAILS FROM NUMBERS AFTER ENTERING PUBLISHER'S
CLEARING HOUSE. I BELIEVE THIS NUMBER TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH THEM.
THEY LEFT A MESSAGE AND SAY THERE IS MONEY FOR ME IN THE WAY OF GRANTS, GIFTS, LOANS.
Ok this really gets me lit as in pissed off. I was browsing on the net and minding my own bussiness and now I have a recording telling me that I can vist thier stupid website. Of course the call came in at 2130 that's 9:30 for the non military types. Who calls at that time I know I sure as h*** don't it's disrespectful and most people are winding down and relaxing or in bed. Of course to telemarketers and scammers who cares!
I got pretty much the same scam calls as below.
They called me and told me that they were informing me of grant money available to ease my financial difficulties. The rest was pretty much the same as "Baltimore" below.
They called me to. I was surfing the NET and saw a site about a free federal grant software. I started to sign up then saw it wasn't legitiment but it was to late they had my e-mail and phone number. They've released my name and number andI've benn getting spammed on both ends. There is no legetiment contact information for these people. Please report them to the Federal Trade Commission. The more reports they get the sooner they will be forced to act. Also it wouldn't hurt to notify the Washington Attonery General and your AG about these people. I've done that befor with other people with success although they said it wasn't there responsiblity. Go figure, crimal acts aren't there resposiblility if they operate in thre state. Also you might try filing with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) since they are calling you. I plan on pursuing them at all anlges until they and there partners stop harassing me. People need to put the pressure back on them.
Folks,folks please do yourself a favor and bypass all the sites offering help for grants.
Government Grants are for real and guess what: all the info,applications, search engines etc are available for FREE from guess who?
The Federal Government! They run their own site so do not be misled into thinking you need the service of a third party. Go here:
I too received a call directing me to requestgrants.com but the number was - 1.202.683.1441
They called me. I didn't answer because I didn't know the number. They left a message saying they extention was not known. They called me! What do you mean the extention is not known? I think the people in DC need to get their act together and work on the economy and leave me alone
Our residence ph# is an unlisted number. Left the call back ph# of 202-683-1440
. Called & left 2 messages back to back on 1/27/09 & again called on 2/2/09 from ph# 202-683-1441
